The test prototype of the German sports coupe looks a bit wider, and its exterior has become more serious than the current version of the car. One can not doubt that the engineers of the company have taken care of the increase in the number of horsepower under the hood of its novelty.

Surely, our readers are already aware that a completely new generation of the legendary German sports family Porsche 911 will receive an in-house index of 992. It is known that the novelty features the modular platform, as well as several available hybrid modifications. The start of sales of the Porsche 911 series 992 is scheduled for the first half of 2019.

In recent months, foreign automotive publications have repeatedly published the so-called “spy” photos of a completely new generation of Porsche 911. And it’s no wonder why, on closer examination of these images, there is a feeling that we are not the new, but the “old” representatives of this family, because the designers of the brand do not really like to change the look of their models.

A couple of hours ago, another video came to our office, which shows how the test prototype 911 winds circles around the Nürburgring track – at first glance it’s hard to say that this is a new version of the car.

But the differences are still there – the body of the prototype looks a bit wider and seems more muscular, especially in the rear. The hood received new convex lines. On the front bumper, the air intakes are located slightly lower, and their design has changed, and the rear lights are square, now connected by an LED strip.

Note that the prototype pretty confidently kept himself on the road and even during the passage of turns at high speed. It is reported that the novelty will receive a whole lot of different security systems – they will be useful for sure, because insiders say that the engine’s power will be about 600 hp.

Not so long ago, we wrote about the fact that the electrocar Porsche and Rimac is presented on a new render.
